Launch of new science fiction journal: Living in the Future.

About

Friday 28th Feb 7-9pm. Issue 1 - NEW YEAR, NEW YOU: The Next Phase in Human Evolution. Published in February 2014, Issue 1 takes the form of an A5 journal in black & white, with contributions from: Ben Osborn, Viniita Neet Moran, Pete Inkpen, Marta Poznanski, Ed Fornieles, Paul Kindersley, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Ad Minoliti, Llew Watkins, Joey Holder, and Jack Brennan. The theme of the first issue is The Next Phase in Human Evolution. The world is changing. While Science fiction has often been maligned for its stylistic limitations and non-prestigious subculture, there is little doubt that many of the people shaping these changes have been raised on a diet of science fiction, taking ideas from the page and screen into our present and future. Edited by James Hedges & Rebecca Bligh, Living in The Future is a new journal of Science Fiction and future-writing, to include fiction, essays, poetry and visual art. Themed issues will explore ideas around the genre of science fiction, science-fiction-like phenomena emerging in the contemporary world, and their convergence. The call for submissions for the second issue of Living in The Future, with the theme: APOCALYPSE, is now open, and closes on March 10th — see website: http://www.litfmag.net/issue-2/.
